Excerpt: Madison Central High School officials are addressing a recent instance of student initiation activities which prompted at least two sets of parents to complain to school officials and police.
No injuries were reported as a result of the activities, Madison Police Department Assistant Chief Robert Sanders said. And ultimately, Sanders said, parents of the underclassmen involved decided not to press charges.
MCHS Principal Austin Brown said the activities in question involved upperclassmen and underclassmen, but he did not specify which grades were involved. MCHS serves just under 1,300 sophomores, juniors and seniors.
Though Brown said he could not provide details about what happened, he said the basis for the complaints included “things that would certainly classify that would be used in hazing rituals.”
Brown said the activity apparently occurred after school Thursday and off school property.
